Alcohol is best, something like Methanol, Ethanol, Propanol (isopropyl alcohol) would be fine smile.gif

Old credit card to remove the glue from the pcb and IHS, and isopropyl alcohol with q-tip cleans up the die very easily. Getting all the glue off took me more time than anything else in the process.

Oh, and try to find the highest percentage alcohol you can if you're going isopropyl.

I have 99% and it works great.

Actually....that isn't a half bad idea...
What if you used extremely strong threaded nylon(spider wire) fishing line? and pulled it under and around?

Funny... I thought about making a string saw myself to do this. Wire saws are extremely effective, but one made of nylon would be much safer to test on a CPU tongue.gif

I've actually investigated the usage of dental floss to cut through the adhesive, but at least for my chip it was nigh impossible to fit it in between the IHS and the die, so this was no option. On the other hand, I wasn't able to fit in a ceramic glass scratcher (or whatever they're called in English) there either, while others had great success using them.

But it might actually be an option for some of you. biggrin.gif

There is talk of freezing the CPU, which in turn freezes the adhesive, allowing the ability to possibly twist off the ihs

I doubt it. It would require a lot of force to twist off the IHS. Considering we have a 100% success rate so far with this method I would think Freezing it would not allow you to break the Adhesive.
